Maylandsea, and the adjacent Mayland, are villages on the Dengie peninsula in the English county of Essex. They are part of the Althorne ward of the Maldon district,[1] and have a parish council that covers both villages.[2]

Religious sites[edit]

St Barnabas Church, Maylandsea

The local parish church is St Barnabas, which is in the Diocese of Chelmsford.[3]

Local amenities[edit]

There are two public houses: the Horny Toad, which is situated in the yard of Blackwater Marina, and Hardy's (recently refurbished and previously known as The General Lee until July 2010). Maylandsea Bay Sailing Club and Harlow (Blackwater) Sailing Club are based in the village. The local school is Maylandsea County Primary School, in Katonia Avenue. There is a small local shop located near the bakery and barber's.

Parish council[edit]

Mayland Parish Council meets monthly at the Henry Samuel Hall. The villages of Mayland and Maylandsea are in an area considered to be at risk from flooding, and the Parish Council, working with Maldon District Council, is developing a localised emergency plan to link into the wider emergency strategy covering the whole district.[2]

Local interest[edit]

There are always fossils to be found in Maylandsea, the most common being lobster fragments.[4] There is a crashed P51B Mustang from World War II crashed near Lawling Creek.[citation needed]
